Moving onto more offensive line-up.

Complete change in formation on Toril’s side. The 3-5-2 formation was previously tested against a newly promoted Alhama but this is the first ever real test this formation will receive. Starting with 3 CBs - Ivana, Kathellen and Rocío, with Maite, Toletti and Zornoza in the middle, Olga and Feller supporting them from the sides on wings, and finally we have Feller and Esther leading the attack in front.

Emma Hayes, on the other side, has not changed up Chelsea’s much. The noticeable change is certainly James starting instead of Kaneryd after the brilliant off-the-bench performance she put up in the first leg in London.


Real Madrid XI: Misa, Rocío, Ivana, Toletti, Olga, Esther, Weir, Kathellen, Feller, Zornoza, Athenea

Subs: Kenti, Teresa, M. Oroz, Nahikari, Gerárd, Claudia F., Møller, Lucía, Svava, Freja Siri, Sofía, C. Camacho, Sofía

Predicted formation: 3-5-2

Chelsea XI: Berger, Bright, Ingle, Carter, James, Reiten, Eriksson, Fleming, Kerr, Cuthbert, Buchanan

Subs: Mušović, Orman, Nouwen, England, Svitková, Kirby, Périsset, Mjelde, Rytting Kaneryd, Charles, Abdullina, Čanković

Predicted formation: 4-3-3
